I'm a good cook, but I'm more comfortable following a recipe.
My favorite things to cook
I like casseroles and one dish meals. I really don't like cooking meat...my husband usually takes care of that while I do all the side dishes and desserts. (AND the cleanup!) LOL!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey on THanksgiving and Ham for Easter...special cakes on birthdays.
My cooking triumphs
Chicken Paprikas like my mother-in-law used to make. Hers was the best ever!
My cooking tragedies
Cooked a ham with the plastic still on it for my in-laws first dinner with us. I poked it with whole cloves and decorated it with pineapple rings and cherries and when we tried to cut it, we realized the plastic was still on it.
